    You'd want to add $100 in there for sound deadening, as well.

    it will improve the midbass by providing the doors with more mass.

    Depending on your experience things can be hard. Get good tools. I use Snap On 1/4" ratchets and sockets although its not something u need to have, they're just good for the job(craftsmen is fine). Pliers, screwdrivers, small pry bars(very small, to remove door panel clips) But if you worried about screwing things up, find someone who has knowledge and have them install it for u.

    If they can't hear the front speakers from the back they won't hear the front ones

    Save the money that would be spent on rear speakers and use it on deadening and/or better front speakers. Use DIY drivers for better dollar to performance ratio. Either use premade passives crossovers, build your own, or buy an active crossover.

    It's been years since I have been really active in car audio forums. I posted a ton about 10 years ago here on caraudio.com, termpro.com, sounddomain.com, caraudioforum.com, and a whole bunch more that I no longer remember. You may remember me. If not, you're probably just young haha. Because of the many years since I've done any selling / buying, the only person I can remember for my references is Team PSI (David Moore).

    If your looking for better quality in your speakers... you want to deaden your doors. Most people dont deaden their entire car(as this is expensive) most people just do their doors. You can get the best of the best product for like 100-200 dollars.. or get some mid brands for a little less.... or you can go the route I did with peel n seal from lowes. everybody has bad things to say about it... but it does the job. $14 a roll



    Yes that is a 5 1/4th audiobahn mid speaker in my civic's headrest. circa 2006.

    Re: Best SQ setup

    How does peel n seal hold up on verticle surfaces (like doors)? I think if I used that stuff it would only be on the floors of the car so it can't really fall off..

    Also, what is peel n seal actually considered, like a roofing product?

    Re: Best SQ setup

    I would stick to butyl-based deadeners instead of Peel & Seel.

    People have had varying results, but I'm still not convinced asphalt based stuff is the way to go. Too many stories of it coming apart and streaking on windows, etc...
